In Remembrance - In support of the Royal British Legion

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
in Flanders fields.

By John McCrae

Today is Remembrance Sunday where we remember those that have given their lives for others.

I have made my card using a freebie digital download from Debbi Moore's website.  I have used two backing papers, a topper and a ribbon bow.

Early in the year I won some crafty candy from a fellow crafter so I have used the poppy/leaf/stamen/sentiment that I received in my candy.  I have cut the poppy layers out of scraps of the backing paper and edged it all in black ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
